Parks and Recreation Auction

Perhaps the best item that any pop culture fan can get is a prop from their favorite movie and TV show. The only problem is that they can be rather expensive. But if there’s any show that can convince you to “treat yo self,” it’s the beloved NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, and you’ll have a chance to do just that in a few days.

The Hollywood auction house Screenbids is teaming with NBC Universal Television for an auction of nearly 300 items that were used on the set of Parks and Recreation. There’s everything from wardrobe worn by the cast members to props from the various hot spots around Pawnee, Indiana, and even their arch rivals from Eagleton. Check out some of the items available in the Parks and Recreation auction below. Read More »

olly moss unreleased harry potter cover art

Harry Potter has gone through several rounds of book covers, each of them more stylized than the last. But what about the cover art that didn’t make the cut?

Olly Moss, one of /Film’s favorite pop culture artists, has revealed several sets of book covers that never officially made it onto the front of one of the new Harry Potter editions. As a hardcore Potterhead whose official Harry Potter covers graced the 2015 editions of all seven J.K. Rowling books, he didn’t seem too choked up about the fact that these rejected cover arts didn’t get to see the light of day. But as a Potterhead, he also saw it as his magical duty to share with fans some of the sets he created — with the appropriate permission, of course.

Hot Toys - Burnt Darth Vader Helmet Replica

Perhaps one of the most coveted collectibles for Star Wars fans is the helmet of Darth Vader. It’s the signature accessory of one of the most iconic villains that the big screen has ever seen. And if you worship Darth Vader as much as his angry grandson Kylo Ren, then Hot Toys has an incredible new collectible that you’ll want to get your hands on.

In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we learn that Kylo Ren keeps the burnt remains of Darth Vader’s helmet in his own private chamber. When he’s desperate to squash the light that still remains in him, he speaks out to his grandfather for guidance, hoping to finish what the Empire’s second in command started decades before. Now you can call out to the spirit of the Dark Lord of the Sith yourself with a burnt Darth Vader helmet replica coming soon. Read More »

Thor Ragnarok Mondo Print

Today is Thanksgiving, when families all round the country gather to stuff their faces with delicious food and argue about politics.

The awesome folks at Mondo have a handful of great Black Friday deals which include new prints for Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Thor: Ragnarok, Ex Machina and the films of LAIKA, not to mention a deluxe edition of The Art of Mondo book.

Scratch-Off Movie Poster

The 100 Movies Bucket List scratch-off poster isn’t quite as stylish as the other one we featured, but it’s still a fun way to keep track of this extensive list of movies that everyone should see. Check out the scratch-off movie poster below. Read More »

Home Alone 2 Experience

We’re coming up on the holiday season, which means it will be time for the annual viewing of Home Alone. And while it might not be quite as celebrated, you can probably give Home Alone 2: Lost in New York another watch, especially since this year marks the 25th anniversary of the sequel. Or if you’re one of the five hardcore Home Alone 2 fans out there, you can get your own VIP experience at a certain New York hotel.

When Kevin McCallister inadvertently ends up in New York City for Christmas instead of with his family in Florida, he checks into The Plaza. Now you can check into the same hotel and get a special Home Alone 2 experience inspired by Kevin’s misadventures in New York City. Find out more below. Read More »

New Blu-ray Releases

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

It’s time for another round-up of physical media. Are you like me – living in the past and unable to give up material possessions? If so, you prefer good old fashioned physical media like Blu-rays to just going digital. There’s something more special (at least in my broken brain) about displaying your Blu-ray collection on a shelf than just purchasing something digitally and then forgetting all about it. With the actual physical disc, it’s always there, in front of you. Or maybe I’m crazy!

This week’s Blu-ray roundup features one of the coolest action movies of the year, a somber, snowy drama, a five-film box set, and a documentary about cats. What more do you need, folks? Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

luke skywalker jedi temple

Ahch-To may have you thinking back to a certain recurring joke in Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tightsbut the oddly-named planet is crucial to Star Wars lore and the plot of the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It’s where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker finds himself in self-exile, and where the aspiring Jedi Rey finds Luke at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But The Last Jedi won’t get into the nitty-gritty of how the former Tatooine farmboy ended up in the Ahch-To Jedi Temple — nor will the movie overshare details at all, really — so you’ll have to look to the Star Wars Battlefront II video game to gain insight into this particular journey.
